    Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask this.

    I've noticed that after installing the new Stygian Abyss client on my laptop the weight of my laptop has increased. I have a bad back and am medically limited on the amount of weight I can safely lift.

    I just tried lifting my desktop up and it is extremely heavy, because I have much more software installed on it. My desk is very sturdy that holds my desktop so that isn't really an issue - but note the similar results.

    My question is two fold - what is the weight/file ratio? How many gigabytes are there to a pound? And is there any way to install the client but have it run out of a zip file to keep the weight down?

    Much thanks.

    You could try running SA from an external hard drive, and then unplugging the external hard drive when you need to go somewhere or pick your laptop up.

    I found this solution to be the best.

    Thanks!

    Stygian Abyss didn't play very well off of the external drive, but I was able to move all of my HD instructional knitting videos over.

    Stratics always has the answers. Thanks guys!
